The new well, 3-BRSA-1023 (3-SPS-85), named Carioca Sela, is located in the assessment area of 1-SPS-50 (Carioca) field, some 4.5 Km from the discovery well. In this new well, 270 km away from the shore of São Paulo State, it was recovered a 27º API oil, in a water depth of 2,149 meters.

The discovery was verified by oil sampling in test performed in reservoirs located at an approximate depth of 5,250 m.
